Asus formally launched the Asus Eee Pad Transformer a tablet as solution that provides multimedia enjoyment to users. Asus Eee Pad Transformer comes first in Taiwan and will be followed in Britain and the United States. Asus Eee Pad Transformer is not an ordinary tablet, and this is milestone on the Android marketplace that offers many exciting features at a competitive price. Asus Eee Pad Transformer is designed for users with the use of cloud computing. Unique design full size QWERTY keyboard docking station that offers two USB ports, SD card reader and additional battery that can last up to 16 hours.
Transformer Pad Eee also was asked to provide the best experience and perfect for users when using cloud computing. Unique design full-size QWERTY keyboard docking station offers two USB ports, SD card reader
and an additional battery life up to 16 hours.
Some other features are also added, such as an anti-scratch IPS panel, dual camera, also supports video playback of Adobe Flash 10.2. In addition, Asus is also developing an intuitive user interface called Waveshare with many unique applications such as MyNet, MyLibrary, and MyCloud. Currently, the Eee Transformer Pad can be ordered with pre-orders in Taiwan since March 25, 2011. According to the plan,
after Taiwan, tablet Asus will be present also in Britain and the United States.
The Transformer is essentially a netbook that splits in half. Simply release a catch, and the 10.1-inch screen detaches. Then you can grab your tablet and carry it around with you for some quick Web browsing,
emailing or film watching on the move. The keyboard can stay at home if you’re travelling light, or in your bag ready to emerge when you’ve got somewhere to sit and you need to type away during more in-depth
tasks. When you’re done, the docked keyboard and tablet fold away exactly like a normal laptop.
Lenovo has had a similar idea with the LePad and U1 dock. The LePad also switches between Windows and Android. The Transformer’s dock is a very elegant solution. For your money, you get a netbook and a tablet,
with the advantages of both and a few extra benefits besides. Battery life is one: each half of the Transformer has an 8-hour battery life, and, when you dock the two together, that extends to 16 hours. If the tablet is running out of juice, docking with the keyboard will charge it up again.
But the biggest advantage is the flexibility of choosing how you want to work, depending on what you want to do. Light use like watching video, checking emails or catching up on Facebook means simply pulling
out the tablet. When you can’t face using the touchscreen for a bigger task, like writing an important email or doing some work, simply slap the keyboard on the nearest flat surface and get typing.
With the keyboard dock attached, you can get down to some serious typing action.
Even the netbook-sized keyboard is a welcome alternative to an on-screen keyboard when you’re getting stuck into an extended typing session. It’s more comfortable to set a laptop-shaped device down than
to have to hold or prop up a tablet while tapping on the screen. And both devices are extremely lightweight on their own, so, even when slotted together, the Transformer is still very portable.
The 1,280×800-pixel screen plays Flash video and 1080p high-definition movies. You can make video calls with a 1.2-megapixel camera in the middle of the screen bezel. On the back there’s a 5-megapixel camera
for taking proper pictures, as long as you don’t mind looking silly when you hold the whole thing up to snap your picture. Netbooks are often criticized for being underpowered, but the Transformer takes care of that. It boasts a dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 ARM processor, Nvidia GeForce graphics and a choice of either 16GB or 32GB of storage. There’s also an SD card slot for extra memory.
Some users may prefer the Eee Pad Slider’s built-in physical keyboard because it means the tablet is completely self-contained. But the built-in keyboard makes it a much thicker device, which isn’t a problem for the Transformer as you can just whip the keyboard off. And the Slider’s screen only opens to one position, while the Transformer’s screen can be adjusted to the right angle for you, like any laptop screen.
Like the Eee Pad Slider and Eee Pad MeMo, the Transformer will be powered by version 3.0 of Google’s Android mobile operating system, code-named Honeycomb. Honeycomb will offer flashy 3D-style graphics, a
fancy new version of Google Maps, and, more importantly, a layout that’s suited to the larger screen size of a tablet. What it won’t do, however, is support keyboard shortcuts, so, when you’re typing on the
Transformer in netbook mode, you won’t be able to hit Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V to copy and paste. That’s the main caveat to the idea of a tablet that turns into a laptop: while it looks like a laptop, it’s still an Android mobile device. You’re limited to Android apps rather than installing your own software and you won’t have the full
experience you’d get from a Windows laptop or Apple MacBook.
Being able to detach the screen from the keyboard proves to be a neat solution to the fact that tablets sacrifice usability for portability.
If you’re not keen on netbooks, the Asus Eee Pad Transformer won’t be the ideal device for you, but, if portability is your main concern, then this tablet should offer the best of both worlds.
